Nutrition - Wellness By Jessica (Holistic Nutritionist, BSc)

Many skin conditions have their origins in hormone imbalances and dietary imbalances. A key example of this is acne through the teenage years or during menopause, allergic skin conditions, even eczema and dermatitis. All of which can be improved with a multi-disciplinary approach. We can treat the condition, manage the inflammatory responses and improve the integrity of the skin with our in-house clinical team.

Key facts about achieving beautiful, healthy skin

  • Achieving beautiful, rejuvenated and glowing skin is a journey which requires commitment, support and expert knowledge.
  • Topical nutrition (Medical Grade Skin Care) is fundamental to change and both time and incremental progression is required with both home care and in-clinic treatments.
  • Gut health is very important to our skin. It is where we absorb all our essential nutrients and should be taken into consideration
  • Your hormones and gut health play a massive role in how healthy your skin is and how fast it ages. Poor gut health can inhibit the nutrients that can be absorbed, and your skin will be the first sign of issues in this area. Dry skin, grade 1 and 2 acne, psoriasis, rosacea, and dermatitis can all be connected to gut health.
  • Hormonal health is often associated with acne, but it also plays a role in dark under eye circles, fine lines, and facial flushing. Sex hormones and thyroid hormones both need to be healthy for fantastic skin and health.
  • Many people will notice changes to their hair, skin and nails long before they start to notice some of the more uncomfortable symptoms associated with poor gut health, imbalanced sex hormones, or a sluggish thyroid.
